Everyone has their own story. Be it bad or good, big or small, it will indirectly impacting someone’s life. We are living in a community where everyone is a part of the ecosystem whether you like it or not. At times, we feel down, we feel that the whole world is against us, we feel hopeless, and all the negative feelings but there are people who are living a life worst than us. We live to learn from people around us, that’s life.
Learn to appreciate, slow down, acknowledge, celebrate and share. To bring the best out of you and those around you. Julie’s(yes… The biscuit manufacturer) has launched the Best of You Movement in May 2014. The social awareness movement is to celebrate everyday heroes. What is your story? Do you have one?

Left to third right are the people who had shared their story with us. They are Allison, Amy, and Wan.
Allison and Amy are best friends of different race. In West Malaysia, this is uncommon and their story had touched people’s heart. In Sarawak, we might see it as normal, nothing special. Having best friends of different races and hanging out together is just part of our lives but it means a lot for those who are not used to see this kind of friendship.
Wan had to get his foot amputated to set himself free. He suffered from childhood sickness that caused him to not able to enjoy a normal childhood. Now, he is living an active lifestyle even with a prosthetic leg. He can swim with one leg too!
One the right, it’s the founder and consultant, Mr. Sai Tzy Horng.
Last but not least, don’t forget your date with The Best of You at Vivacity next week.
P/S: This last photo is not staged, just snap and go. I only realized when I prepared it for this post. Pretty cool.
